But how to use it?
Is there anything on the manual about this? Where can I find more info?
Because I have a USB drive to work with, and if I could get this to work without the need of a PCB, ROM swap, etc, it would be great.

Thanks

can u pls help me too.

The option appears now very cleary on the new version.
You connect the USB drive, then select USB family and it will start the utility.

Hi,

Is it possible to make com-port connection to 2060-771962 and 2060-771859 type pcb?
Are there Rx and Tx pins? I haven't had time to test the pins yet... :oops:

Thanks for any info.

Regards,
Peter

Also also looking for some info on a WD5000LMVW-11CKRS0 with a 2060-771859-000 board

Terminal outputs or SATA board would be great.

On a 2060-771962, I use connections like usb2 drives
it has 6 pins in one row, like usb2 drives on fist picture on this thread. You can't use toshiba adapter because of case, but Rx, Tx and GND are the same (I use cdrom cable)

I think a ground connection is pretty much always optional with WD. I never bother.

Exactly. And even with the SATA boards, I never bother with a ground and it works too. Probably because it's getting the ground from the SATA power cable.
